Travel Experiences | Winter Sport Adventures
Winter time is a great time to enjoy the outdoors. Embracing the season with a sporty adventure in crystal white snow is a very popular vacation choice for many lottery players. Add to that having a nice hot toddy by the fireplace with your friends at the end of the fun day.
Every winter, people put on their hats, coats and boots for popular activities like skating, hockey, skiing, snowboarding and the occasional snowball fight. But for those looking for something a little different why not try snowshoeing and dog sledding in Finland, tobogganing and snow biking in Switzerland or ice climbing and ice fishing in Canada.
One of the most popular and thrilling winter adventures you can have is to go snowmobiling! Those who try it, say they love it and that it is exhilarating and addictive.
Riding on your cool Artic Cat snowmobile at high speed through a beautiful countryside, with the snow powder blazing behind you, is exciting. You don’t need any special training to snowmobile and so almost anyone can give it a whirl.
Most winter resorts offer snowmobile guided tours for gentle family cruising or advanced powder riding. You are given a full-face helmet and instructions on how to handle the machine. There are single and double seat sleds and some high-end models that come with heated seats and handgrips, feet warmers, MP3 players and communication systems.
Snowmobiling is a great way to explore new places and get your adrenaline levels going. You can ride on trails, through open terrain, dense forests, over mountains, on frozen lakes, down steep valleys and enjoy moonlight rides at night.
Here is a list of some snowmobile destinations that can offer you a great ride.
